Indigenous/ Nationalities

Nepal is a Multiethnic, multilingual, multicultural and multireligious country. Taking stock of these truths, the Constitution of the Kingdom of Nepal of 1990 has put forward a conceptual design to uplift the living standards of the Indigenous nationalities-respectively known, identified and addressed as ‘Adibasi / Janajati’ – by removing all sorts of existing economic and social inequalities and to set up and develop their healthy social life based on justice and morality, thus consolidating the national integrity, and preserving such peoples’ identities and cultural diversities by developing their languages, literatures, arts, scripts, religious and cultures and by creating special opportunities for their education, well-being and employment. … However, certain chronic anomalies still persist. The Census of 2001 has cited the populace of the Indigenous Nationalities at 37.2% of the total population of Nepal. By some official quirks, however, the same census enumeration has incorporated only 43 of the 59 nationalities, and the rest – i.e. 16 Adibasi/ Janajatis – remain unreported and unidentified in the Census of 2001. it needs no stretch of imagination that these 16 indigenous nationalities have been conveniently relegated to the category of “Others” which are registered at 4.8%

of the population. It is safe to claim, therefore, that the Indigenous nationalities command a respectable 42% of the total population of the nation.

Comment: Last week, just before Christmas, I received the very beautiful book The Great Himalayan Trail I ordered. It took much longer than the 10 days you mentioned in your mail, but I was expecting that so no problem at all. Really a beautiful book, inspiring me to come back to Nepal for the 9th time :) ! Best regards and pheri betaunla from Amsterdam,
